We posted an event on our new facebook: here.


I am now completing the editing for the OnClassical demo: a CD printed in 1,000 copies that will be distributed at the next Festival della Creatività. I have been invited - as founder of OnClassical - to participate as a speaker at the festival, with the QuiFree association (which shares knowledge). OnClassical is actually a partner of QuiFree and these CDs will be given as gadgets.

Following is the list of pieces the CD will contain:

9 - Popular folk song: Schneegestöber
Don Kosaken Chor, male folk choir (I. Borko solo)

I have chosen pieces that are most representative of and the best recording for each instrument. Therefore, this CD will contain pieces that are currently included in recordings found at, and other pieces which I have recorded for other (traditional) record houses.

The choice of the egg as the main image on the cover is somewhat emblematic and enigmatic at the same time: first of all its colours are those of, and besides this, I simply find it humourous; and this might be a good way - and maybe a little provocative - to represent my idea of the site and its recordings.

I am thinking of a way to make the audio material free to all (maybe via the Internet Archive). By the way: you will be happy to know that many titles of our catalogue are already present on the Internet Archive (this URL: and that you may now download part of it in OGG vorbis files. Of course all of you may upload a webpage including our free previews (MP3 files)!


Last 2-7th July I was at the TMH, music institute at the KTH of Stockholm, to present my theory about automatic performance (.ppt/zipped).

I also had some time to explore Stockholm with Benedetta and to enjoy some relaxing walks and bicycle rides.
